Given,Four men for three women.

Five children for three men.

Tofind,Number of women if the island has 1000 children.

Solution,We can simply solve this mathematical problem by using the following mathematical process.

Here, we have to apply normal arithmetic method.

5 children for = 3 men

1 child for = 3/5 men

1000 children for = (3×1000)/5 = 600 men

And,

4 men for = 3 women

1 man for = 3/4 women

600 men for = (3×600)/4 = 450 women

Hence,thereare450women.
